Our olive oils lead the nation

Cradle Coast Olives won the Best Olive Oil of Show, as well as the Medium Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) title at the Australian Olive Association’s national awards in September. Rochford Hall Olive Oil won the trophy for champion Delicate EVOO in its first national competition. Kellevie growers Paul and Chris Lovell have 500 trees, mainly of the Koroneiki variety, and harvested for the first time in 2013. Ashbolt Farm, in the Derwent Valley, was judged reserve champion for Robust EVOO. Mr Lovell commented on the strong State showing: “Tasmanian growers are able to get more flavour out of their olives because of the longer growing season. The future is looking good with the local industry growing.”
